Constable, where's yer troosers?

If the police wore kilts, would they have this problem:
Police officers have been caught short after being supplied with the wrong trousers.
Perhaps not, although those north-easterly winds could present a different challenge.

I can't say that I'm surprised about any of this. When one reads that:

The Grampian force is switching to a more casual uniform in June,
you just know a mistake's been made.

I imagine that some sociology graduate in the Grampian force has decided that the police should appear to be more "inclusive". Why not go the whole hog and put the officers in shell suits and baseball hats? What most of us want is to see more police on the beat dealing with genuine crime and deterring neds, not trying to be fashion models.

Legend has it that upon hearing Andy Stewart's finest hour my dad's sister wanted to tell everybody about "that song where Elvis Presley does an Andy Stewart impression". 
As if.
